We recently moved into a new office and had to hook up our computer stuff immediately, so that left us with a jungle of computer cords all over the floor, and a bunch of other tech stuff that was out of place. Norh came in around Christmas time, and made everything look PERFECT! All our cords and wires are clean & hidden, and everything is running smooth as can be. We highly recommend Norh & Smalltyme Electric -- best of all, the price is right!

I had an electrical problem last month that left portions of my house without power. Be Electric responded thru Thumbtack, and came over within hours to confirm that I needed a new breaker box. We settled on a very fair price, and Brady returned, as promised, 2 days before Christmas to do the work. What a relief!!

I originally was looking for a bartender, but then Charlene also offered to decorate. She was always super quick to respond to all of my questions too! Charlene and Devon did the decorating and clean up which was a huge help! Devon was an amazing bartender! Many people asked where I hired him from! If you don't want to be tied down with hosting duties at your next event, I definitely recommend using Charlene and Devon!

Inspired Events did a great job at our event. The balloon decorations were even better than they looked in the pictured and than what I had visualized. They were very professional, courteous and punctual. Will definitely work with them again and can recommend them to anyone looking for making their party look amazing and at a great price. Great job!!

Where do I begin... Heidi is beyond what we ever expected. She exceeded every expectation plus more. She was vet easy to work with. We still don't know how she was able to juggle everything in her life and ours as well... super woman! My now wife and I showed up a few minutes late to our rehearsal and when we arrived she had everyone lined up and ready to go! Her time management is amazing. Her planning and decorating is great! She was even great with difficult family members and went out of her way to ensure we had no worries on our big day! Our wedding was a success because of her! Couldn't have done it without Heidi. Thank you so much!!!! We are beyond grateful!!

I originally thought I was going to DIY my wedding but when Charlene answered my request I knew that was going to be the best decision I ever made to hire her. IT WAS! I am so glad I did not DIY my wedding. I would give Elegant Wedding Design 100 stars! She made my special wedding day more perfect than I could have ever imagined. People in my family were second guessing the event space I had chosen because it was small and they couldn't see the vision that I had. Charlene truly transformed the space into a beautiful, elegant and luxurious wedding venue. Every single one of my guests were blown away and in awe as soon as they stepped into the ceremony and saw Charlene's magical beauty she created. She was so engaging, kind and truly made sure every detail of my vision was accomplished. She gave great ideas and expertise. I trusted every decision she made. I love that she owned all of her own materials and had the perfect matching color for our wedding scheme. She did a site walk thru and planned everything with a layout. Her text and email correspondence was great! I could write two pages about how amazing she is and how you really need to make sure she is handling your wedding decor and design. As soon as my first phone call with her I could tell in my spirit she would make all of my dreams come true. and she did! I had the complete piece of mind from the moment I hired her. I was even worried because I WASNT worried about anything. She is like the fairy godmother that transformed Cinderella! I give her my highest review possible! Elegant Wedding Design is the best!

I had a 6 month project where we went from a 2 bedroom one bath bungalow to a 5 bed room 2 bath bungalow. I had someone on site working everyday. Luci kept me updated on all of the issues as well as guided me on decorating the place. Larry and the crew were a joy to work with. We had the normal amount of “surprises” and cost overruns for a project of this size, but Luci and Larry overcame everything that was thrown at them. I can not say enough good things about them.

Lora helped me to create my farytaile wedding. With reasonable pricing, fresh flowers, and her views everything was perfect. Lora really did a great job with my flowers, just beyond my expanctation. Also, she was always open to any of my ideas about other decorations (and you know how picky brides are). On my wedding day she helped me to set everything, so I didn't have to worry about anything. Beautiful fresh flowers, Floral arch, candles, you name it, she has it. She also decorated our church with beautiful flowers. But the thing that I loved the most is the back dropping, with the lights, she did an amazing job! It was my pleasure to work with her, I will certainly work with her again for any other occasion.

Lisa has excellent style and understands the clients needs. She coordinates the furniture to match the style of the home. I've have many homes designed and staged by Lisa that have sold so quick because of her excellent design. She is patient and works extremely hard to satisfy the clients. I would highly recommend her to decorate or style anyone's home. She is delightful. Jlhd

We first worked with Renae for Christmas decorating for our restaurant. We received so many compliments on the decorations that we asked her for advice on how to improve the existing design. She gave us insightful feedback and recommendations that wouldn't cost a lot. All the changes were so positive that we used her to fully design our new restaurant dining room. She is very creative with ways to design very affordably and respected our budget.

I had a great time working with Dana for my July 2017 wedding at Salvage One and would highly recommend her as a day-of coordinator. Since she worked at Salvage One, she knew the venue well and knew what would work and what wouldn't. She helped me fine tune the details for the day-of activities and helped set up all my DIY decor. She made sure everything ran smoothly the day of so that my family or I wouldn't have to worry about a thing. I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding. Thanks, Dana!

I had a new condo and no furniture. James was recommended to me by a friend. After a short conversation with him and a visit to the condo the recommendations he came back with were just what I had wanted. He listens carefully, has a creative eye, is easy to work with and honest about his opinions. He understands the temperament of the room and the mood I want to create and finds away to achieve both. When I bought my tiny place in London, I knew he had worked in London before, I asked him if he would go to London to decorate my place from top to bottom. We agreed a budget and he went over for a two week period and did a terrific job. I really love it.

I cannot tell you enough good things about Joan Suzio. I interview several decorators to help me transform my house into a guy's place after having been divorced. Joan really listened and took A LOT of notes. She had a really good method which help me think about things in steps instead of getting overwhelmed. Joan is very considerate about the budget and has given me plenty of options. We worked on the Family Room/Kitchen, Living Room, Master Bedroom, and touched on Office, Hall Bathroom. The best expression in these tech days is OMG. My place is looking terrific and am still in the process. Thank you Joan for all your help and being a blast to work with!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.

How much do interior designers charge?

You can hire an interior design for a job as basic as a one-room consultation or as complex as supervising the design of an entire new home, helping with space planning, choosing color palettes, and shopping for furniture, flooring and artwork. The size and scope of the job will determine how much an interior designer charges; the average national cost for an interior designer ranges from $75 to $100 or more per hour. Other cost factors include the person’s reputation — interior designers to the stars are usually more expensive — and region. Most interior designers charge an average of $100-$225 for an initial consultation, but some will charge an hourly rate, usually starting at an average of $50, for larger projects that require extensive consultations. Hourly rates may be available for smaller projects, such as redecorating a living room or staging a home for sale; for instance, shopping and consulting can cost an average of $75 to $100 per hour, while staging costs and average $95 per hour. For many homeowners, a percentage of an interior designer’s cost is recouped through the professional discounts they receive from their vendors.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
